Artistic (Creators)

The artistic type is one of the six personality types included in the Holland Code model of personality.

Artistic types tend to be creative, innovative and intuitive. They value self-expression and do not tend to just follow and accept the rules. They often think outside the box and have the natural ability to see things from different perspectives and to come up with new ideas.

Due to this, artistic types are likely to be satisfied and fulfilled in careers in the arts. Artistic types are also suited to other careers that ignite their creativity, such as in product design, architecture or as an entrepreneurs.

It is important to note, that although you may share the most preferences with the artistic type, you are very likely to share interests with the other personality types. The Holland Code ranks how you relate to each personality type to give you one of 720 unique personality types.

Artistic Careers

Those with artistic personalities tend to be creative and think outside the box. Due to this, they tend to excel in careers as artists (as the name suggests), but also in careers as entrepreneurs, musicians, product designers or architects.

Artistic personality types may struggle in careers that don’t promote creativity or spontaneity, such as careers in mathematics, finance or administration. This includes careers such as a financial analyst,  an insurance claim clerk, bank tellers, budget analysts or technicians.
